The Emotional Manipulation

and Abuse Course

Gaslighting? Stonewalling? Guilt Trips?

If you're exhausted from toxic cycles in your life, Stop Them For Good

Learn from licensed psychologist and psychoanalyst:

Perrin Elisha, Ph.D.

Founder of Depth Therapy and Relationships ReWired

Discover the science-based, heart-centered Relationship Map that takes you from loneliness, heartbreak, fear or divorce... to the confidence and clarity to succeed in love.

Exhausted from toxic cycles in your life?

Someone was manipulative or abusive to you. At first it just felt "unfair" or "difficult."

It may have started with your Mother, or Father. Even a sibling. Or maybe you had great family relationships and then fell in love as an adult and discovered too far in that this person was manipulative and every argument was a no-win.

These experiences scar you at the deepest level. They leave you blocked to love and deeper connection. All of this leaves you scrambling, hoping to avoid this happening again.  

The truth is, if you've been in an abusive relationship, you need insight and knowledge to heal the scar and prevent it from happening again.

Relationships are meant to feel safe, secure and loving.

Even in healthy relationships, people DO and SHOULD fight and even go through difficult times.

Do you know the difference between a difficult time and emotional manipulation or emotional abuse? Most people don't.

I believe we all deserve basic education about this form of abuse, as research shows that it causes more harm than physical abuse.


In this program you will: 

  • Learn to identify sociopathic or pathological narcissistic behavior.
  • Learn to identify emotionally manipulative behavior.
  • Learn the alternatives to manipulative behavior that actually foster healthy connection.
  • How to heal if you experienced an abusive or manipulative relationship in your past.
  • How to avoid entering into or contributing to an emotionally abusive or manipulative relationship in the future.

We Will Dive Deep To Understand:

  • What is gaslighting? Stonewalling? 
  • Why guilt trips are toxic and how to avoid them. 
  • Why you are attracted to Narcissists.
  • How to identify your own role in manipulative cycles. 
  • How to find out if your relationship can become healthy or if it is a lost cause. 
  • Whether you are co-dependent.
  • How to tell if you are being controlled or unknowingly controlling others.
  • Why contempt could ruin your relationship. 
  • What a boundary is and how to make and keep them. 

"Wow! I wish someone had explained the definition of abuse to me years ago! This information has changed how I view my past and present"


"I had no idea that my first marriage was emotionally abusive. I thought it was just "difficult." I wasn't able to have a healthy relationship until I understood and healed this. Thank you!"


"I couldn't understand why I kept being in toxic relationships until I took your course and realized that my Mother was emotionally abusive. Finally, I can leave that pattern behind and have clarity in my new relationship!"


"Dr. Elisha’s course is enormously helpful. It is incredibly thoughtful and detailed and inclusive of all aspects of relationships. She helped me to understand my reluctance in the beginning of what is becoming a lovely relationship and she has given me many things to think about as this relationship develops. The depth of her knowledge about relationships is amazing. I’m very grateful for all I’ve learned from her. "


"I so wanted to save my marriage, and now I can-- because my husband and I now understand healthy ways to speak to each other and we've stopped avoiding fights altogether or just having a 'blow out'. We are so grateful!"


"I had no idea that my boyfriend was actually stonewalling me when I got so anxious. I thought maybe I had done something wrong and always blamed myself which made me so anxious. Now I have healthy boundaries and expectations for our relationship, and I feel much calmer."


A Personal Message from Dr. Elisha

 I have studied emotional wellbeing and the mind-body connection for more than 25 years. When I look back on the turning points in my life and career, each has led me deeper into understanding that our essential nature is as relational creatures. Along my path of study and discovery, I realized that when we understand the principles of loving relationships, we have a map for the complex and multi-dimensional world of relationships!

Many of my patients have said to me: “Why didn’t someone teach me this when I was 20 (or 30”) ?!?"  This course is a response to that sentiment.  

From birth our very existence depends on our ability to attach to caregivers, and throughout life the single largest factor predicting our wellbeing is the quality of our relationships.

Let me teach you how to navigate the world of relationships with intelligence, compassion, responsibility and clarity—starting with a healthy relationship to your self and your past!

Wondering If This Class Is Right For You?

Everyone should take this course! We all will encounter manipulative people either at work, in our family history, in our dating lives, with children or friends. Knowing how to see clearly and stay out of toxic patterns is so powerful! 

Countless times in my practice I meet people who are in an abusive relationship but have no idea and think that they are weak, or crazy... or people who were in  an abusive relationship, and are still trying to recover.  

My solution is to teach you the map of secure vs abusive or pathological behavior. Then, you’ll no longer wonder which behavior is constructive, and how to respond if someone is being destructive.

Sometimes manipulative behavior is easily reversed with a missing piece of education.  Other times, the abuse or manipulation is firmly entrenched in the perpetrator's personality and the only healthy option is to leave.

How do you know the difference? I can teach you.

Once you've completed the course, you can go forward with the peace that you are acting in good faith, not yourself repeating any abusive behaviors. You will also be able to see the warning signs of this behavior in any new relationship!

That’s why I created The Emotional Abuse and Manipulation Course, the first online, experiential course that will give you a clear map of this behavior. 

My promise to you is that you will get the clarity and confidence to navigate these behaviors once and for all. 

By the end of this course, you will feel a newfound confidence that you can take care of yourself and your loved ones without being manipulated by other people
